  • Opening Reception at The Pierro Gallery

    Thursday Jan 25, 2018 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

    Carved, Painted, Stitched: The Folk Art Collection of Barbara Cate. This exhibition features one of the great loves and accomplishments of local art historian Barbara Cate. Cate (1923-2017) loved and lived with her collection of American Folk Art in her Maplewood home for many years. She built most of her collection in the 1980’s and 1990’s traveling widely around the United States with her husband Tracy Cate, sometimes by motorcycle, meeting artists and buying their work. A trained art historian and professor at Seton Hall University, Barbara organized exhibitions and wrote books and catalogue entries about folk art. She surrounded herself in her work and her daily life with the art she loved best. This exhibition celebrates Barbara, her passion for collecting, and her belief in living what you love.
